The first episode the final season of Mad Men (7.1) opened with Don Draper reading Dante’s “Inferno.” This is very telling, as throughout the 7 seasons of the series, creator Matthew Weiner infuses literature and cultural references of the period, a collision that resulted in some of the best television scripts in history.
FilmDayton is excited to present an expert on the subject just 5 days before the premier of the very last season, 7.2, airs on April 5 at 10:00pm on the AMC network.
Andrew Strombeck, Ph.D., associate professor of English at Wright State University built a created a class and devoted an entire semester to the topic of “Mad Men and Literature 1965–70″ to show the influence literature has on pop culture.
